Illustrator Drop Shadow Not Working
on Apr 13, 2010 at 6:56:01 pm

When I try to create a shadow, nothing shows. If I apply again, then a shadow appears that you would expect after applying a a shadow twice. Worked yesterday just fine. Does not work today. Only change was creating a new project and changing drop shadow parameters. I am stumped.

The only occasions I can think of when the shadow would not be visible is if

  • all parameters are set to 0

  • you assign the shadow to a fill but there is no fill

  • you assign the shadow to a stroke but there is no stroke

  • the shadow color is the same as the background color and so it's not visible


These are the ones come to mind right now. Also check the Appearance palette that the shadow is located in the correct location/order.
